Hunter Biden Snubs House GOP’s Demands

Abbe Lowell, the attorney for Hunter Biden, has rejected a House Oversight Committee demand to produce documents related to his business dealings.

Rep. James Comer, the new chair of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to Hunter Biden, along with his business associate Eric Schwerin, and uncle James Biden, asking for a number of communications documents relating to his foreign business deals and finances, and any classified documents he may have.

“The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these foreign business deals to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people,” Comer wrote in the letter, adding in a later statement that the “Biden family business model is built on Joe Biden’s political career and connections”:

“Biden family members attempted to sell access around the world, including individuals who were connected to the Chinese Communist Party, to enrich themselves to the detriment of American interests. If President Biden is compromised by deals with foreign adversaries and they are impacting his decision making, this is a threat to national security.”

Comer added that they were looking at legislation to “strengthen federal ethics laws regarding public officials and their families… [and would ] make recommendations regarding federal laws and regulations to ensure that financial institutions have the proper internal controls and compliance programs to alert federal agencies of potential money laundering activity.”

In a response, Abbe Lowell, the attorney for Hunter Biden, claimed that the letter fails to demonstrate “legislative purpose” necessary for the Oversight Committee to investigate Hunter and his business dealings, as their “scope of oversight is limited when dealing with private persons” like Hunter.

“Peddling your own inaccurate and baseless conclusions under the guise of a real investigation, turns the Committee into ‘Wonderland’ and you into the Queen of Hearts shouting, ‘sentence first, verdict afterwords,'” Lowell continued.

He argued that the idea that an investigation into Hunter Biden would help the Oversight Committee to draft the ethics legislation was an “attempt to invent a legislative purpose that is thinly veiled, at best.”

Lowell said that he would be willing to sit down with Comer and ranking member Rep. Jamies Raskin, “to see whether Mr. Biden has information that may inform some legitimate legislative purpose and be helpful to the Committee.”

In a statement, a spokesman for the Oversight Committee GOP completely dismissed the letter. “It’s no surprise that Hunter Biden is trying to stonewall Congress’ oversight and hide information about Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s suspicious business practices,” the spokesman said.

“The American people demand transparency and oversight, not political coverups,” the statement added. “The Oversight Committee will continue its oversight and use all tools at its disposal to gather information critical to our investigation and to inform legislative solutions.”

Earlier this month, Lowell wrote letters to the Department of Justice and the Delaware Attorney General demanding that they investigate a number of top Trump allies, including Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, Garrett Ziegler, along with John Paul Mac Isaac, the Wilmington computer repair shop owner, for sharing information from Hunter’s laptop.

These letters were published only a few days after Hunter was slapped with a $1,500,000 defamation suit by Mac Isaac after he was tracked down by a private investigator to Culver City, California.
